Quite the scenic walk in autumn. It’s closed for the season, but definitely worth checking out!

Very easy for everyone. You can't bring your dogs on the board walk but being out in the big is a beautiful treat for all to enjoy. There are many benches along the way for those who need a rest.n

I love this walk. Bogs are unique and this bog walk offers a unique opportunity to see one up close. Thanks information stations along the way are very helpful. If you are really lucky you may get a ranger to walk with you!

Really neat to see the progression from forest to bog. Accessible to anyone and educational signs is what makes this trail really neat!

Love the view even on a cloudy day! Can get congested if there is a lot of people on the walk!

Nice walk. Birds, Lady Slippers and Pitcher Plants. Didn't know Maine had carnivorous plants.

Beautiful oasis in the middle of town. About a 5 minute walk from the parking lot. The boardwalk is accesible to everyone and is great for a family. There are placards explaining how different parts of the bog function and the wildlife and flora you will see in each part. Can be done in an hour. Be sure to walk the City Forest (3.8 miles of trails) that encompasses the bog.

Fun! Great for a stroll if you're not looking for something to strenuous. This walk actually inspired my boyfriend and my hour and a half trip to Cadillac mountain. can't wait to bring our dog:-)
